That was the snowflake that broke the camel's back

A snowjob

I know. We're luckier than a lotta areas. But we're still twice our yearly average of the white shit. I'm gettin preeettttty sick of it. And it's certainly not making my disposition all rainbows and kittens, I can tell ya that right now.

Fact of the matter is, I'm gettin damn scrappy. I wanna kick somebody's ass.

That dumb bitch that had her big SUV's nose up my little red baby's ass on my way to work yesterday morning would do just fine.

Stupid cow. Yammering on her cell phone, of course. I was in the left lane, runnin 10 damn miles over the speed limit to try to get away from her. The right lane was full and I could not get over. I came thiissssss close to just hittin the ole break pedal...just a tap...just to get her attention, ya know?

But I figured I'd wind up pickin up my teeth offa Route 29...watching as she blasted past me...still blowin her cell phone.

I'm tellin ya...that 29 at rush hour is like Talladega...except with stupid bints on cell phones.

Eagles, schmeagles...

This dude sat in our tree overlooking the river for probably an hour or more just scopin' things out.

Shortly after taking these photos, I glanced out the front window and found this...

I snuck my nightgown...and grabbed this shot. They were having a "conversation". You haven't lived until you've heard a couplea eagles "talk" to each other.

That was the year that was

Happy New Year, all three of you die-hard Lollygaggin readers, bless yer little hearts. And everyone else that happens to stumble in accidentally.

I know. I've really, really sucked as a blogger this past year. I intend to change that. Really. I do intend to.

2010 has been good to me, more or less. It's not been the best year I've ever had health-wise. But it's not really been the worst, either. 2010 was the first year I really started to feel...old. Body-wise, I mean. My body is betraying me. I'm getting...wrinkly. Things don't bend or stretch as well as they did.

Except my boobs. They haven't had any problem stretching. (sigh) Luckily, my ass is so big that it shouldn't fall for a looooong time, so I suppose that's a plus.

Let's see if I can briefly recap my 2010...

I quit smoking on January 3, 2010...and haven't had a ciggie since. Gotta tell ya...I'm damn proud of that one because I have willpower, whatsoever. Unfortunately, I gained about 20 pounds that I certainly didn't need.

Fuck. It's always somethin.

2010 brought me a heart-wrenching layoff at work. Luckily, I was called back less than a week later. Bastards. Puttin me through all that psychic trauma for nothin. Nevertheless, I'm back at a job I love and I'm very thankful for that.

In 2010, I lost friends and ex-lovers, but gained a great son-in-law and a couple new pals.

I flew for the first time (and probably the last...don't like it, no, no, no) in my life in 2010 and got to experience Vegas.

We bought a boat and spent as much time as we could on the river in 2010. And I snuck in a new car on the next-to-the-last day.

In 2010, I got a new camera and I've spent the year trying to capture the river and all her moods...

...and a few of the critters that call this area 'home'.

Happy New Year, everyone! May your 2011 be filled with love and laughter.
